The recipe says it will make 6 miniature pies but I do not waste food that I can put to use. I ended up being able to make 10 pies. This is the perfect dessert for a family dinner night or just a night in. It doesn't make a ton of food but what it does make is.....PERFECTION!!
These little pies were the perfect amount of sweet and the best flakiness. Serve them with vanilla ice cream and you will sure to be everyone's favorite person that night. I can't wait to hear how they turn out for everyone!! Enjoy!
1 box Pillsbury pie crusts (refrigerated, contains 2 crusts per box)
3 – 4 granny smith apples, medium
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice blend
2 tablespoons butter, melted
ice cream (optional)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Peel apples and slice into small/thin pieces. Place into bowl and mix with sugar and apple pie spice. Set aside.
Take dough out of the package and lay on a flat surface. Press it out a little bit to get more give from the dough. Find a glass or cookie cutter that is a little bigger than the muffin pan circle. Press it into the dough and set aside the circles. I got about 7 circles out of my dough before I had to press it together and roll it out again.
Take dough circles and press into the muffin pan. Make sure that the dough goes up the sides of the muffin tin. This will make it easier to pinch the top and bottom together.
Fill each pie crust with a generous amount of apples.
Take the second package of dough and repeat step two. Once you have all the dough cut out, lay on top of each pie and press the sides together. Brush with melted butter and slit the tops. Put into the oven for 20-25 minutes.
Let pies cool for about 5-10 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream if you wish and ENJOY!!!
